California is making it difficult for primary voters to review the criminal justice record of presidential hopeful Kamala Harris.

The state’s Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation recently removed archives on incarceration rates from its website. Harris has attempted to portray herself as a progressive on criminal justice on the campaign trail, but her record has faced growing scrutiny. Most recently, Harris was called out by one her 2020 challengers on the debate stage.

The reports contained information from Harris’ tenure as attorney general from 2011 through 2017. During that time, data shows more than 120,000 black and Latino citizens were sent to prison.

Former President Obama and his administration have continued seemingly hypocritical attacks on President Trump despite new scrutiny over his illegal oversight of the Trump campaign.

I’ve always been proud of what this team accomplished during my administration. But more than what we did, I’m proud of how they’re continuing to fight for an America that’s better. https://t.co/0cfDltjueP
Obama recently seemed to up the ante on his criticism of the president as he took to Twitter to promote an anti-Trump op-ed by the Washington Post over the weekend. In the piece, 149 of Obama’s former White House aides accused President Trump of  “poisoning American democracy.” It also took aim at the president’s supporters by calling them “racist, xenophobic and homophobic.”

The authors also cite “relentless attacks” on the legitimacy of Obama’s presidency, but their attacks on President Trump seem to rebuke Obama’s call for caution on labeling people.

The law lays out requirements for patients to be eligible for a doctor-assisted suicide. The terminally ill patient is required to have an incurable diagnosis with six months or less to live, ask their doctor for prescription drugs to end their life twice within a 15-day time frame, and submit a written request for an assisted suicide witnessed by two other people.
However, not everyone is on board with giving terminally ill patients the right to die. Opponents, including medical professionals and religious leaders, argue the emotionally charged law would limit the patient’s freedom and inhibit doctors from providing potentially life-saving treatments.

“I will tell you this is not about freedom and autonomy and choice, this limits your freedom, it limits your access to care and it decreases your ability to obtain life-saving care. I deal with terminal patients every day, I’ve done it for over 30 years and this is getting worse and worse.”

Supporters of New Jersey’s so called ‘right-to-die’ law await the legislation to take effect this week. Earlier this year, New Jersey became the eighth U.S. state to pass an assisted suicide law, which allows terminally ill patients to end their lives with prescribed medication from a doctor.

Despite the ongoing debate on the morality of assisted suicide, the legislation will officially become law in New Jersey on Thursday.

” I’m a witness to watching my beautiful, intelligent mother whimper in agony as cancer spread from her breast to her bones and then to her brain…the doctor gave her the last dose of morphine and I held my mother’s hand and watched as her breathing became shallower until she passed peacefully. I’m here to ask you to make the just decision — one that allows someone to have that right if they are deemed to be terminally ill to end their life in peace with their family.” — Dr. T.

In addition, a second doctor must verify the diagnoses is correct and the patient must be “fully informed” of other treatment options, including pain control.

Papadopoulos specifically requested the Department of Justice look at the dollar bills given to him due to the department’s probe into the origins of the Russia probe, with Papadopoulos being used as a reason to start an investigation. The money is believed to be supplemental evidence as the Justice Department is getting closer to acquiring transcripts of recorded conversations between Papadopoulos and an alleged informant of the FBI — Stefan Halper.

“They were looking to make a conspiracy case, using me with this fake information to then hurt Trump…what they were trying to do is fabricate a conspiracy among the Trump campaign and President Trump using their own people,”

Former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos is going to Greece to return ,000 given to him for reasons he believes constitute as entrapment. Papadopoulos claims the money is marked bills, and was given to him in a plot by the Obama-era FBI and CIA to charge him with a violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act. The money aroused suspicion with Papadopoulos, prompting him to turn it into his lawyer where it has been stored in a safe.

“All my work was actually dedicated to undermining Russian influence and interests throughout the world
yet I find myself somehow as Patient Zero of a Russian conspiracy, and that was the moment when I realized how dominant and how manipulative PSYOPs (psychological operations) are,”

said the former Trump campaign aide.

Papadopoulos was approached by a man named Joseph Misfud in 2016, who told him about Russian knowledge of dirt on Clinton. Papadopoulos then urged a Department of Justice investigation into the Obama-era FBI’s role in starting the Russia probe and fueling the “collusion hoax.”
